  • PSC-SSS-PM Series

    PSC-SSS-PM Series

    The PSC-SSS-PM Series has iniature sensing head design for measurement of inaccessible or moving objects. Optional touch screen interface for indication, graphing, configuration and data logging to MicroSD card. Temperature range -20°C to 2000°C.

    The PSC-SSS-PM Series sensor heads are constructed of stainless steel with a full range of unique companion accessories. These accessories enable accurate non-contact temperature measurement of inaccessible or moving objects in hot environments (up to 356°F). Their space saving design is easy-to-wire and simple to integrate into existing data acquisition systems. The PSC-SSS-PM is resistant to interference from movement of sensing head cables and ideal for mounting on robotic arms.

    Offering a choice of temperature ranges from -20° to 2000°C, the 2-piece sensor system features adjustable emissivity settings on all models. The general purpose models are ideal for a wide range of target materials. These materials include paper, plastics and food.  Other materials consisted of coated metal ceramics, and painted surfaces, as well as liquids and powders. The short wavelength, high temperature models improve the accuracy of readings on reflective materials such as steel and other metal surfaces. Choices of optics, including narrow options for long-distance measurements of high temperature targets.

  • Transfer Standard Diadem Pyrometer Series

    Transfer Standard Diadem Pyrometer Series

    A Transfer Standard  Diadem Pyrometer Series (TSP) is a highly accurate and long-term stable pyrometer. This series is used for comparative measurements between the TS pyrometer and the pyrometer/black body source under test. TSP temperature readings are then transferred to the devices. The high temperature stability of the BBS1500 enables reliable temperature detection with the TS pyrometer and the transfer to the test pyrometer. Diadem pyrometers are traceable to the International Temperature Scale ITS 90. Then, they are calibrated with PTB-calibrated reference devices and adjusted. They are also easily transportable and verifiable as opposed to calibration sources.

    • Display resolution 0.01°C
    • Thermostatically controlled detector
    • High resolution A/D and D/A converters
    • Analog output with 16 bit resolution
    • Selected, extremely long term stable electronic components
    • High quality achromatic lenses
    • Uncompromising design to fulfill highest demands, three galvanically isolated circuits

    Serial Interface RS485:
    The pyrometer communicates with other digital devices such as a PLC, computer with free SensorTools software, or a self-written communication software program via serial interface. Measured values can be recorded and device parameters can be set directly on the device via SensorTools software or RS485 serial interface. Long distance transmission lines at high data rates can be realized and the devices can be addressed and used in bus operation. An interface converter RS485 to USB (accessory) allows for easy connection to a PC.

    Analog Output:
    The high-resolution 16-bit analog output supplies voltage of 0-10 V for external temperature evaluation; an example would be for connection of a temperature display.

    Ambient Temperature:
    The continuous temperature compensation keeps the measurements independent of ambient temperature variations.
